To Andrew Rawnsley in Reactions:
"Unfortunately, most of the items listed have better versions already in existence as part of Adjust, so really all it does is accentuate the OS split, because the public only have source access to 'out-dated' versions of things."
For one ROL could offer quite a bit of their Select things for RISC OS 5 - not everything due to the kernel differences, as PM states. PM even showed the odd Select feature running on top of RISC OS at the odd show but I have the impression that PM has no intention of offering Select features and thus e.g. enhanced base apps like Paint etc. Furthermore until now it doesn't look like an IYONIX Select will happen by in near future. So the OS split is probably something we have to live with for some time thus why not enhace the IYONIX version?
